Rahul Dravid to get Padma Bhushan

New Delhi, Jan 26: Former India captain Rahul Dravid has been chosen for this year's Padma Bhushan award on Friday (January 25). Dravid is one of the 24 recipients of India's third highest civilian honour.

Dravid, who retired from international cricket last year, has been one of the legends of the game scoring over 10,000 runs in both Tests and One Day Internationals. The Wall is one of India's greatest batsmen to have played the game.

The 40-year-old is still active cricketer, captaining Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Since quitting international cricket, Dravid has turned a TV commentator.

It is another feather in the cap for the Bangalorean, who was honoured with Arjuna award and Padma Shri. He also won the ICC Cricketer of the year award in 2004.

Dravid played 164 Tests and 344 One Day Internationals.
